The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has warned the Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives against torture and extra-judicial killings, saying no policeman in the world had the right or authority to kill crime suspects.
He admonished the SARS personnel to always respect the right of every Nigerian, noting that this was the way they could change the negative public perception about them.
Addressing SARS operatives and their commanders from various state commands at the Force Headquarters on Thursday in Abuja, the IG, in a veiled reference to the Amnesty International’s criticism of the squad, stated that the policemen had a lot to do to correct the public perception that they did not follow due process in their operations.
He said the squad would undergo retraining and restructuring, adding that the civil society organisations would be involved in the revamping process to contribute to the training programme.
Idris stated that the squad would have an intelligence arm to assist with intelligence gathering, stressing that the SARS’ operation would be intelligence-led, henceforth.
According to the IG, the operatives would be issued new badges and placed under state Commissioners of Police, while those in Abuja and Lagos would be under the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of operations.
He warned against the use of excessive force and reckless use of firearms, which he said could cause public panic.
He said, “You should respect the constitutional right of every Nigerian; you don’t have authority to take lives, you don’t have authority to change a civil case to a criminal case, you don’t have the right to torture suspects.
“You should conduct yourself to the admiration of the people. Don’t portray yourself as a demon. SARS is not devilish; you have to change the face of SARS by handling cases justly. Don’t turn the complainant into a criminal. You have to be sincere in dealing with the public.”

The Nigerian Air Force has killed undisclosed number of Boko Haram members during a raid on the insurgents in Borno.
The Director of Information and Public Relations of the NAF, Group Capt. Ayodele Famuyiwa, said that the fighter jets of the NAF hit suspected Boko Haram on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa in the North of Borno on Friday.
He said that the strikes were carried out in response to the report of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions carried out by the NAF in the area.
Famuyiwa said that a post strike battle damage assessment conducted by the NAF showed that several of the insurgents were killed and their hideout seriously damaged.
“The Nigerian Air Force in continuation of its efforts at finishing the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists conducted several air strikes at suspected Boko Haram locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa Northeastern Borno State on Friday 16 September 2016.
“The air strikes were as a result of ground-based intelligence and successive Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by NAF platforms. In a video released by the NAF, some of the terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when NAF jets were scrambled to hit the locations.
“A post-strike battle damage assessment of the the strikes revealed that the rendezvous was badly damaged with many casualties while those far from the vicinity could be seen scrambling to safety. The aircrafts involved in the air strikes are the NAF F-7Ni and the Alpha jets.”
He said that the aerial offensive by the NAF had continued to clear the ground for the movement of surface forces in the ongoing Operation Gama Aiki in the area.
He recalled that the fighter jets of the NAF killed many top commanders of the insurgents during similar raids on their camps at Tumbin Rego on August 26, 2016.

United States President, Barack Obama, will meet President Muhammadu Buhari on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly gathering this week.
Obama will discuss with Buhari on US support for security and economic challenges in the country, as well the government’s efforts to defeat Boko Haram.
Nigeria and the US have pending agreement over the sale of US military equipment, especially attack helicopters to fight the insurgents.
White House Deputy National Security Adviser, Ben Rhodes, added that Obama would hold separate sessions with Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider Al-Abadi; and Colombian President, Juan Manuel Santos.
Rhodes, however, said that Obama will not meet Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte, who recently insulted the US President.
The White House cancelled a meeting with Duterte during Obama’s recent trip to Laos for a regional summit after Duterte insulted him.
Duterte, who also slammed the UN and threatened to quit the world body after it criticised killings in its war on drugs, has not been scheduled to attend the General Assembly meeting.
Duterte turned down a meeting with UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, at the Laos summit.
Meanwhile, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, said in a statement that Buhari would deliver Nigeria’s statement at the opening of the general debate of the Assembly on “The Sustainable Development Goals: A Universal Push to Transform Our World.”
Adesina stated that the President would also attend a high-level summit to be hosted by the UN, on “large movements of refugees and migrants.”
He said, “The summit, which is the first of its kind, is expected to come up with a blueprint for a better international response to enhance the protection of migrants and refugees.’’
Osita Iheme posted a photo of himself with his dog Charlie on Instagram two days ago and he was trolled by some of his followers. The comment under the pic is hilarious, with many saying he bought a horse...
A popular Nollywood actress, Cossy Orjiakor, has named her two cats Buhari and Goodluck.
She posted on her Instagram page,@cossyorjiakor, a picture of the cats facing each other as if in a deep conversation.
“My cats, Buhari and Goodluck, (are) discussing the Nigerian economy (and) dollar rate,” the actress wrote.
Last month, a man, Joachim Iroko, who named his dog Buhari, was arrested and remanded in prison, following his arraignment at Ota magistrate Court 2, Ogun State.
The Nigeria Police had stated that Iroko’s “conduct was likely to cause breach of peace, by writing a name, Buhari, on a dog and parading same in the Hausa section of Ketere Market, Sango, thereby, committing an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 249 (d) of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, Nigeria, 2016.”
The accused is expected back in court on Monday.
Orjiakor, however, expressed her readiness to be arrested for a similar conduct.
“All I want is a good-looking sexy police officer with Donald Duke’s (former governor of Cross River) face; Uti Nwachukwu’s eyes; PSquare’s chest and D’Banj’s ‘no long thing.’ He should come with sexy handcuffs.
“And he (the policeman) should have an English accent like Jim Iyke. All I want is a super-handsome police officer with six-packs and stamina to arrest me this morning (Saturday) and take me to Aso Rock prison; and serve me Aso Rock food because ‘Mummy Victor Market’ is too expensive these days.
“If it is a policewoman, then she must have fat, soft buttocks and big tits. I must be high on some cheap stuff this morning,” she said.
Her post generated several comments.
The Chairman of Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Nigeria Limited, Mr. Jide Omokore, has returned N200m to the Federal Government, Sunday PUNCH has learnt.
It was learnt that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has also traced and frozen eight bank accounts allegedly belonging to Omokore.
Reliable sources in the commission told our correspondent that the eight accounts were opened at different branches of Skye Bank Plc.
Omokore, who is an ally of the immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, among five others, are currently standing trial before a Federal High Court for an alleged $800m (N247bn at an exchange rate of N309/$1) fraud.
A top source at the commission said, “During investigations, we traced about eight accounts to Omokore in Skye Bank. Most of the accounts are company accounts. Some were domiciled in Marina, Adeola Hopewell and some other branches on the (Lagos) Island.
“We were able to identify about N200m. He raised some bank drafts in the name of the Federal Government and the money has been deposited into the Federal Government account while investigations continue.”
The commission had on Monday, July 4, 2016, arraigned Omokore, and five other individuals and firms, before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja on nine counts bordering on money laundering and procurement fraud.
Those arraigned with him were a former Managing Director of Nigerian Petroleum Development Company Limited, Victor Briggs; a former Group Executive Director, Exploration and Production of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Abiye Membere; a former Manager, Planning and Commercial of the NNPC, David Mbanefo ; Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concepts Limited.
Omokore was alleged to have used the Strategic Alliance Agreement signed between the NPDC and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Limited to swindle the NPDC and the Nigerian government of billions of naira through the lifting of crude oil from some oil wells between March 2013 and May 2014.
The other accused persons, who were senior management employees of the NNPC, were accused of conspiracy in inducing the NPDC to facilitate the lifting of crude by Omokore, Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Limited.
They were equally charged with receiving car gifts from Omokore, Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Limited.
The charge read in part, “That you, Olajide Omokore, Atlantic Energy Brass Development Ltd, Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Ltd and Kolawole Akanni Aluko (now at large) between May 2013 and March 2014 within the jurisdiction of this honourable court obtained by false pretences and with intent to defraud, 7,551,867 barrels of crude oil (Brass blend) valued at the sum of $823,75,189.95 from NPDC, NNPC and the Federal Government of Nigeria on the false pretences that you had funds (both local and foreign) necessary to support the NPDC in petroleum operation for the OML 60,61, 62 and 63 and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1(a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act Cap. A6, 2010, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria and punishable under Section 1(3) of the same Act.”
The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to them.

Jordan Henderson scored a stunning winning goal as Liverpool ended Antonio Conte’s unbeaten record as Chelsea manager with an impressive 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge on Friday.
In a dominant first-half display, Liverpool took the lead through Dejan Lovren before England midfielder Henderson curled home a superb effort from distance in the 36th minute.
Diego Costa reduced the arrears in the second half with his fifth goal of the campaign, but Jurgen Klopp’s men held out to register another eye-catching Premier League win.
Liverpool have also beaten Arsenal and champions Leicester City this season, the only blot on their league record being a surprise 2-0 defeat at promoted Burnley.
They moved level on points with Chelsea and Merseyside rivals Everton in the early-season standings, two points below leaders Manchester City.
It had been with a 3-1 victory on this ground that Klopp recorded his first win as Liverpool manager 11 months ago. On Friday’s evidence, his team are title contenders.
Chelsea would have gone top with victory, but instead Conte tasted defeat for the first time in his fledgling tenure as his side dropped points again following last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Swansea City.
It was Conte’s first home league defeat since a 2-1 loss to Sampdoria with Juventus in January 2013.
David Luiz, meanwhile, lost to Liverpool on his second Chelsea debut, following his return to the club from Paris Saint-Germain, just as he had in his first appearance back in February 2011.
Liverpool were unexpectedly without Roberto Firmino due to what the club said was a “minor groin strain”, but any fears they might miss the hard-working Brazilian forward were banished immediately.
The away side registered two shots on target inside the first two minutes, Thibaut Courtois saving from Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge, and they took the lead in the 17th minute.
Chelsea were punished for twice switching off at a free-kick on the Liverpool left.
First they allowed Philippe Coutinho to take the set-piece quickly, giving the Brazilian time to measure an in-swinging cross towards the back post.
Slack marking left Sadio Mane and Lovren unmarked and it was the Croatian — back in the team after an eye injury — who seized the chance, beating Courtois with an adroit side-foot volley.
After Sturridge had thrashed a cross-shot across goal, Chelsea produced their first real chance when Luiz’s looping header from Willian’s free-kick was fielded by Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
But within two minutes the hosts were 2-0 down as Henderson gathered a hurried clearance from Gary Cahill, steadied himself and arced a sublime 25-yard shot right into Courtois’s top-left corner.
Chelsea’s players were being bypassed by the match, but they managed to plug some of the holes in their defence in the second half and in the 61st minute, Costa gave them a lifeline.
Joel Matip’s unnecessary decision to go to ground enabled Nemanja Matic to reach the byline on the left and the Chelsea midfielder cut the ball back for Costa to volley home at the near post.
The Brazil-born Spain international scored a late equaliser at Swansea and he threatened to do the same here, brilliantly gathering Oscar’s headed knock-down and lashing a shot at Mignolet.
But despite Conte sending on Cesc Fabregas, Victor Moses and Pedro, it was Liverpool who came closest to scoring again, substitute Divock Origi’s header drawing a fine goal-line stop from Courtois.
